All mountain & outdoor sportsmen and women already know the importance of personal responsibility, risk-conscious action, camaraderie and experience. Now it is time for all of them to extend the familiar precautions by some measures. We refer here to the guidelines developed by the Austrian Association of Alpine Clubs (VAVÖ) for the practice of mountain sports in times of the coronavirus.

Guidelines for all mountain sports:

  1. Take no risks. Stay below your personal performance limit when doing alpine activities. Consider the corona-related risks and complications during rescue operations. The motto is: Only healthy in the mountains!
  2. Keep your distance at least 1 metre. Use mouth-and-nose protection if, in exceptional cases, the minimum distance of 1 metre must be observed. Certain mountain sports activities (for ex.: mountain biking) may also require greater distances (see below).
  3. Prefer mountain sports in small groups. Keep in mind that it becomes more difficult to keep distance as the group size increases. Avoid heavily frequented tours and places.
  4. Avoid familiar rituals such as shaking hands, hugging, summit kissing, offering a water bottle to others, etc.
  5. In addition to general emergency equipment, mouth and nose protection and disinfectant should be carried in your backbag and used.
  6. In an emergency, proceed as always. As a first aider, follow the general first aid guidelines and additionally use a mouth-and-nose protector.
  7. Observe hut rules When staying overnight in mountain huts, in addition to the mouth-and-nose protector you must also bring your own summer sleeping bag and upholstery cover. Sleeping places must be reserved!

Hiking:

  • Follow the guidelines!
  • On the 250 km of marked hiking trails in Wagrain-Kleinarl it is not difficult to keep your distance.
  • Note: In the area of the Grießenkareck there are restrictions due to the construction work of the new mountain railways. Please follow the signs on site. 
  • Toll road Jägersee towards Schwabalm: open 

Many of our huts are open for you in our hiking area. Your free, digital holiday assistant "PIA" will inform you about the opening hours around the clock. Just ask for it at check-in and use it without downloading and independent of the equipment. In the PIA you will also find route maps, information about events and much more, always up-to-date.

All hiking routes, huts and tours can be found in the interactive map. Simply filter by difficulty and you'll see all data with altitude profile and map. This function is also available in the "PIA App", so you have all of them compactly on your smartphone.

Here we would also like to point out the safe handling of grazing livestock!

  1. Please avoid contact and do not feed them.
  2. Keep calm, do not scare grazing cattle!
  3. Mother cows protect their calves, avoid contact between mother cows and dogs!
  4. Keep dogs always under control and keep them on a short leash. If an attack by grazing cattle is about to happen: Put them on a leash at once!
  5. Do not leave hiking trails on alpine pastures and meadows.
  6. If grazing cattle block the path, keep as much distance as possible. 
  7. When grazing cattle approach: Stay calm, do not turn your back, avoid the animals. 
  8. Leave the grazing area quickly at the first sign of agitation. 
  9. Observe fences. If there is a gate, use it and then close it properly and cross the pasture quickly.
  10. The alpine pastures are wonderful nature experiences. If everyone obeys the rules and shows respect, nothing stands in the way of this recreational fun.

Wagrain-Kleinarl started as a corona test region with weekly tests on June 25, 2020. Employees from commercial tourism companies who are in direct contact with guests and visitors are tested. After a 4-week test phase, the tests have passed into the nationwide tests as throughout Austria. Around 20 companies with around 200 employees take part voluntarily. In this way, the situation can be monitored and, if necessary, responded to immediately. The tests are expected to be financed until October 31, 2020.

Together we create security and trust again through the necessary openness and transparency!
